Your grandson is lucky to have you Andy. Pumping and freezing would be the ideal. The formula will suffice and it has all the baby needs to grow strong and healthy. You are a wonderful grandpa!

Andy - you definitely are in for a treat! My son was eating oysters at 2, artichokes about then too. You name it, he had it before he was 4. Chicken liver was the best "steak" he had ever had right next to that other steak (lamb). The other night he came home about midnight and got out some snacks - I heard him say "I love my Mom, I love my Mom" - his snack was whole wheat grilled baguette, goat cheese, pesto, and sundried tomatoes. He LOVES flavor and is up to try anything, which makes things pleasant for me - because I don't cook "picky" very well.

My best advice for you right now Andy is save your pennies - for some reason good, fresh food costs a bundle!!!!!!! He is sooooooooo lucky to have you - and you him, for sure!!!!!! It brings a huge smile to my face.

Andy, you'll have a blast! We actually skipped the whole rice cereal thing and just went right to pureed bananas, pears, sweet potatoes and avocados (all pureed) as the first solids. I wanted Sof to experience things with flavor! She is still a good eater but a little tentative with textures and strong flavors. Apparently a lot of kids go through this between 1 and 2--just a bit of a set back, I guess (I just keep showing her all that yummy stuff over and over knowing eventually she'll eat it!). Steven is awfully lucky to have you caring for him!

Here is a great site with a lot of information and ideas on first foods. I've used it a lot! I just gave you the link to the main page but there's a lot more detail, too, if you'd want it.

You guys are all great!

Thanks so much for all the great comments and information. I'm looking forward to his moving on to solid foods.

Of course, I'm looking forward making him a real Red Sox and Patriots fan.
